Renfrewshire Council

​​​​​​​Review of Polling Districts and Polling Places

We are carrying out a review of our polling districts and polling places and we'd like to hear your views.

Every local authority is required to review their polling districts and polling places every five years and we'd like your comments both on our current polling districts and the suitability of the buildings and rooms we use on election days for polling purposes.

Each polling district has a designated polling place for use on election days, providing suitable facilities which are accessible to all electors.

We always aim to locate polling stations within a convenient distance from the majority of electors' homes, with the premises being easy to find and accessible to all. It can be difficult to find the perfect premises and securing permission to use them, but we always aim to secure the best possible solution.

As part of th consultation, you can view our current polling district maps and our polling plan lists the current polling place and we've also included election specific statistics by polling district.

How do I have my say?

At its meeting held on 26 September 2019, Renfrewshire Council considered a report on the first stage of the consultation process and agreed that the polling districts and polling places as set out in the appendices to the report as the draft polling scheme be approved for further public consultation.     

We're keen to hear from electors, elected members and political parties in the council area and within any of the Renfrewshire parliamentary constituencies, sharing your views on our current districts and on how to ensure our polling places are accessible for all voters.

The deadline for responses is Friday 15 November.

All submissions we receive will be acknowledged, considered and published in a council report.
